Bradley Roby named AFC Defensive Player of the Week


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — **After a game-changing, 49-yard pick-six vs. the San Diego Chargers, cornerback Bradley Roby is the AFC Defensive Player of the Week. This is the first time in Roby's three-year career that he has earned conference recognition.

Roby made his first start of the 2016 season in place of Aqib Talib, totaling seven tackles, two passes defensed and the 49-yard pick-six.

His pick-six in the second quarter altered the divisional game in Denver's favor, giving the Broncos the lead for good in their eventual 29-17 win over the Chargers. 

This is the second AFC Defensive Player of the Week award for the Broncos this season (OLB Von Miller, Week 2) and the 32nd time a Broncos defensive player has earned conference player of the week recognition since the award was initiated in 1984.
